We children (that includes you) never really smell the flowers while they still can, meaning they never truly thank their parents for everything they’ve done until it’s too late.
My mum, for example, used to sneak a Babybel into my lunchbox every day, proving that yes, not all heroes wear capes. Even now my parents – who live up north – will still hide a packet of Percy Pigs in any parcel the send through the post.
It really is the small things, but hey, they add.
I’ve no doubts that parenting is the hardest job in the world – apart from being a Hook writer – and even more so for those doing it on their own.
However, men like Richard Cooper don’t seem to think so as he’s ‘warned’ people of the ‘hazards of dating single mothers’ at an event.
As per The Sun, the YouTuber has uploaded a vid called ‘Dangers of Dating Single Mothers’ with the clip opening with a slide showing a woman holding a baby with the meme:
“Single mother here: please take care of some other man’s ball of flesh that eats money destroys dreams and s***s stress. I offer you my ruined floppy pu**y and mental issues!”
The talk then quickly outlines the nine reasons why you should avoid dating single mothers at all costs, with reasons including: questionable judgement skills, rarely take ownership, emotionally unavailable and think the world revolves around her and her kids.
He’s DEFINITELY been pied off by a single mum before. Why else would you feel so strongly about them?
If you want of an example of a how to alienate yourself from all women in one short presentation, watch the below video:
Cooper – who claims he has previously dated a single mother – argued how dating a single mum results in ‘double or triple the heartbreak’:
“When she goes, they go too. You’ll never see them again and even though they might have driven you nuts you have double or triple the heartbreak.
It’s very easy for them to end the relationship because they’ve done it before. It’s easy for them to move along and just slide into the next relationship.
He then criticised the ‘distorted body image’ he believes single mothers to have, stating:
“All you have to do is go on any dating app, you’ll see single mums on there they think they’re a 10 when they’re like a 6. Everybody has had that experience I’m sure.”
Again, this is just the ungrounded opinion of one seemingly very threatened man.
You can’t make sweeping generalisations about a group of people like that and expect people to actually pay attention can you?
Carry on as you were.
